The #Greatest90sGoals as described by you.

    We asked you on Twitter to write about your favourite 90s goals and you didn't disappoint! In no particular order, here's 10 of the greatest goals of the 90s described by @90sfootball followers.

    Eric Cantona vs Sunderland, 1996.

    by @C_Mac1986

    That Cantona chip against Sunderland. Excellent link up play, the dummy run from McClair, the execution. The sheer arrogance of the celebration and the audacity to try it.

    As a fan, it almost helped soothe the embarrassment from Schmeical being chipped by all and sundry the previous few years. The whole ground appalauded and only a mercurial player like Cantona could’ve done that and commanded that level of respect in the celebration.

    Gave United's kids they could do anything.

    Roberto Baggio vs Czechoslovakia, 1990.

    by @MilitoDave

    Italia 90' was the first major tournament that enticed me to the beautiful game. Before then, I only had a passing interest. Following my roots, I cheered on the Azzurri with gusto. The goal, as many can surmise, came via the Il Divin Codino, Roberto Baggio..

    When he slithered his way through a myriad of Czech defenders, time stood still.

    "Baggio, oh yes, oh yes, oh yes - what a goal by Baggio". As Baggio flung himself to the ground in celebration, I was hooked. FORZA AZZURRI!

    Philippe Albert vs Manchester United, 1996.

    by @FplToon

    An already glorious victory. 4-0 up at home to the champions then our central defender decides there's no harm in having a pop, only this is different, this is special.

    A glorious chip from 25 yards and the world's best keeper can only watch it sail over his head.

    Newcastle 5-0 Man United.

    Zinedine Zidane vs Norway, 1998.

    by @ChrisPereira

    Youri Djorkaeff's inch perfect pass drops the ball in a bucket for Zidane, splitting the two defenders. Zidane never takes his eye off the ball, watching it from the time it left Djorkaeff's boot, over his shoulder, all the way into his touch.

    The first touch is delicate, erasing both Norwegian defenders. He has the calm and patience to not snatch at a shot, but to take two touches away from the trailing defender before gently flicking the ball to the far post past the keeper with the outside of his foot.


    Davor Suker vs Denmark, 1996.

    by @coledinho1984

    My favourite goal from the 90s? Davor Suker's goal against Denmark in Croatia's win where he chipped Schmeichel for Croatia's 3rd goal.

    It was the first time I got to see Croatia play, and I was really impressed with them.

    I tried to recreate the goal a million times in the park and in games but have failed miserably!

    Rui Costa vs Ireland, 1995.

    by @gandama2uco

    Portugal had only been in 3 major tournaments prior to that day, and they normally caved under pressure.

    But that goal guaranteed Portugal's presence in Euro 96, and the start of the Golden Generation.

    Paul Gascoigne vs Aberdeen, 1996.

    by @8SwavGav

    It was 1-1. Rangers needed to win to clinch 8 in a row and there was only 20 minutes left.

    Gazza collected the ball just inside his own half beating a couple of Aberdeen players before he hit the halfway line. He powered towards the Aberdeen goal with the ball, tired but determined he held off 2 Aberdeen players before dribbling into the box.

    He was near to the penalty spot and curled the ball into the corner of the net. Goal!!!! 2-1 Rangers! Gazza got a hat trick and Rangers would win 8 in a row.

    Paulo Wanchope vs Manchester United, 1997.

    by @Clucking_Bell_

    The previously unknown beanpole genius had only signed a week before from Costa Rican club football and was making his debut.

    United had never seen anything like it when he collected the ball behind halfway and strode past a pair of flailing Neville’s and a shocked Pallister, and arrogantly rolled it past Schmeichel.

    I can’t imagine a better or more impressive debut goal, a complete unknown away at Old Trafford against Fergie’s United on the way to a famous 3-2 win for Jim Smith’s Rams!!

    Michael Owen vs Argentina, 1998.

    by @mikeivory91

    I remember being 6 at the time and my mom let me stay up to watch it.

    The way he controlled the ball on the outside of his boot, outpaced Chamot, sat Ayala down and drilled into the top corner.


    Henrik Larsson vs St Johnstone, 1998.

    by @csc1888

    Henrik Larsson running down the left wing cuts inside takes a touch to steady himself, no defender close as they back off the super swede.

    He about 20 yards out curls the ball into the far corner past the goalkeeper and to ease the tension inside the stadium as Celtic had to win the game to win the league and stop their bitter rivals Glasgow Rangers winning a record ten in a row.

    He went on to score 19 goals in his madden season. The game finishes 2-0 and Celtic get the result they need to win the sweetest league title and the only one in the 90s for the east end team.
